Crab legs

Best crab legs we had. Buffet had some good tasting shrimp. Used plates were removed promptly. Easy location.

We wanted Crab legs and that's what we got. An endless supply of them. They were Hot and Fresh and very tasty. The Restaurant was Clean and the Buffett was well stocked at all times with a nice variety of items right up to closing. The Staff was Very Friendly and accommodating. We will be back next time we are... More

It was $29.95 per person! It was NOT good (everything was cold and over cooked)!! And the hubby got sick!!! If you try it, maybe you'll have better luck.

This place always has a great buffet with nice QUALITY seafood and other foods. No skimping Here! Staff is also always very nice and helpful! You will roll out the door from being pleasantly, if not a bit over full! We eat here every we're here. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have the sugar scrub in the... More

At least once a week, I venture over to Bishop's Buffet to have breakfast. As a local, I see it as the best value on the beach! The little cheese egg omelets, potato pancakes, and amazing bacon are my favorites among a host of items to choose from. Its the best kept secret on the beach! If you are from... More

Went for the buffet on a crab legs night. Everything except the crab legs had been on the steam table WAY to long . The crab was good and my friend ate her fill. I enjoyed the crab legs also but wanted some differing sea food also. The shrimp was rubbery and tough. The dessert table sucked, when the highlight... More

If you like cab legs, this is the place to be. The dinner buffet has all you can eat crab legs. The price is $32.95 for adults which may seem like a lot to some people. The remainder of the items on the dinner buffet are "so-so" but not terrible. The desserts are good. I have always gotten good service... More

This restaraunts was recommended to us by some friends. The food was awful and the staff was rude. For $75 we could have eaten more, and better seafood at a nice restaraunt. Do not come here! I wish someone would have warned us!

Way over priced would be my first comment. The food was average and definitely not worth $30 per adult. The only redeeming factor here was the crab legs.

Eat here every year during Thunder on the Beach bike rally. This year seemed a little better. Always good crab legs. This year everything was really good. Has always been okay. This time it was really good. Good clean place to eat with good servers and good buffet.
